    • Family with children

      I liked the comfort provided , the cleanliness, the fact that everything in the room worked. Facilities were of a high standard...felt very relaxed.Also like fact that hotel is not a high rise.Seems personal.

      Decor in lobby a bit garish for my taste...but that is completely subjective

      Traveling often---and spending frequent nights in hotels, one can compare service. The staff I met at The Emporium were professional, helpful and welcoming. The ideal combination.Regards,Roslyn

      We stayed here for our wedding night and couldn't have stayed anywhere better. Room service was awsome as well as the staff and the food. Unfortunately we did not get down to the cocktail bar as it was our wedding night but we are definately booking this hotel again to get the whole experience!!! Thanks Emporium!!!

      We didn't like that we had to leave :-(

      Very stylish and comfortable.

      Charging for wifi is a bit rich given the room prices.

    • Older travelers

      The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We initially were put in the incorrect type of room, but once we pointed this out, it was rectified promptly. The room was clean, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom amenities great.

      The business centre is not very big. My husband found he didn't have adequate room to have his laptop and papers spread out. One day other people were having a meeting so he couldn't use the room.
